Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL), shown in 2007 file photo, hung up on President-elect Barack Obama when he called on December 3, 2008 to congratulate her on re-election and to say he was looking forward to working with her since she was the ranking Republican member of the House Foreign Affairs committee. The congresswoman thought it was a hoax, so she cut Obama off but not before telling him he was a better impersonator than the actor on Saturday Night Live. It took two more phone calls from other congressmen before she realized it was not a hoax, and then they had a cordial discussion. (UPI Photo/David Brody/Files)
